After the game, coach Yeom Kyung-yup said, “Starting pitcher (Lee) Jung-yong did his job well, getting out of many crises. The winning duo of (Park) Myung-geun and (Ko) Woo-seok played solid baseball.” “Especially Woo-seok’s five outs were too much, but he cleaned up nicely and I want to praise him as the best relief player today.”
Go Woo-seok said, “It was raining and the weather was bad, but I am grateful to those who prepared the game well. I think I was able to play the game because of the good preparation.”
SSG also had a chance in the top of the eighth inning when they were down 2-5. The first batter, Han Yoo-seom, singled to right-center and Choi Joo-hwan drew a walk. Choi Sang-min replaced Han Yoo-seom and Oh Tae-gon replaced Choi Joo-hwan. A sacrifice bunt by Kim Sung-hyun put runners on first and second and third. SSG played the substitution card, and Kim Kang-min came to bat for Cho Hyung-woo.
LG brought up Go Woo-seok, who finished off a hard-hitting fastball. Go struck out Kim Kang-min on a wild pitch and got Choo Shin-soo to fly out to center field. Go ended the game by getting the first batter of the ninth inning, Ha Jae-hoon, to fly out to the pitcher, Choi Jung to ground out to the second baseman, and Heredia to strike out.
“I was able to win the game because my beast brothers gave me a run, and I had a long break (five outs), and they told me beforehand that I could go out with two outs in the eighth inning, so I was able to prepare well. When I got to the mound, I talked to Dong Won-hyung first and told him that I would only trust him to pitch. I was grateful that he gave me the ball I wanted to throw, and I was able to finish well.”
He continued, “It rained in the middle of the game and the game was suspended, but I was encouraged by the support of many fans. Thank you.”
